ORIGINAL ARTICLE • Results from a Spanish National Survey on the Application of Ultrasound in Pulmonology Services

While ultrasound use initially started for guidance during pleural procedures, over time it has proven useful in the assessment of the lung parenchyma, diaphragm, and chest wall. Therefore, it has become a basic first-line tool to establish a differential diagnosis in patients with dyspnea......

Research Letter: Lung Ultrasound Can Predict Response to the Prone Position in Awake Non-Intubated Patients with COVID-19 Associated Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome.

Prone positioning (PP) is often used in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). While studies have demonstrated positive effects on oxygenation in awake and non-intubated patients, it isn't effective in every case......
